The Sheboygan County Cancer Care Fund (SCCCF) is dedicated to improving the health, well-being, and quality of life for individuals and families of Sheboygan County who have been diagnosed with cancer or a disease of the blood.
Our primary focus is to provide financial assistance to those in our community who are experiencing financial distress because of a cancer diagnosis or cancer treatment. Since 2002, SCCCF has provided more than $1.5 million in financial assistance, or what we refer to as “gestures,” to area cancer patients and survivors!
Common requests for assistance include medications, durable medical goods, wigs, and transportation. SCCCF tries to assist in a way that is most helpful to the individual patient.
Our philosophy is to assist as many cancer patients in our community as we can with the available funding. To do this, we have established guideline limits as to how much assistance a cancer patient/survivor can receive over an 18-month period. This limit is based on funds available and the current demand.
In addition, SCCCF has been offering FREE health and wellness opportunities for area cancer patients and survivors since introducing our Survive, Thrive & Be Fit program in 2010.
Thanks to some amazing volunteers and friends of SCCCF, a wide variety of fundraising events and activities benefiting SCCCF have taken place over the years. However, since COVID many events have not returned and may never return. Thankfully, SCCCF wisely and responsibly accrued a reserve of funds that have allowed us to continue to provide financial “gestures” to are cancer patients and survivors faced with the financial challenges of a cancer diagnosis despite declining fundraising. Of course, we are hopeful and confident that the work we are doing will continue to attract the support that it needs and deserves.
